Bedford, MA – November 5, 2013 – EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class PostgreSQL products and Oracle database compatibility solutions, today announced an exclusive partnership agreement with solution provider Hopla Software SL of Madrid. The agreement appoints Hopla as the sole distributor of EnterpriseDB’s products and services in Spain, Portugal and Italy. Through the agreement, Hopla will provide sales support, technical expertise and software solutions to joint customers in the region.

EnterpriseDB is the largest Postgres software and services provider with enterprise-class software, professional services, support and training to ensure success with Postgres as organizations expand their deployments of open source software in the datacenter. More than 2,000 enterprises, government agencies and other organizations worldwide use EnterpriseDB products and services to successfully deploy Postgres, reduce their reliance on costly traditional databases and slash databases costs by 80 percent or more.

“Enterprises and governments are finding they don’t need to pay the high costs of Oracle and our software has been increasingly recognized for its strength supporting mission and non-mission critical applications for a fraction of the cost,” said Sean Doherty, senior vice president, worldwide sales and business development at EnterpriseDB. “Hopla Software will be a valuable partner as demand for Postgres continues to increase.”

EnterpriseDB is expanding its network of partners in Europe to meet a growing demand for Postgres. The database has earned greater recognition as European Commission initiatives increasingly call for greater use of open source software. Companies and other organizations have also increased their adoption of open source solutions.

“The performance and cost savings of using EnterpriseDB’s products instead of traditional databases means we have a better option for our customers,” said Juan Zamora Ramirez, Sales Manager at Hopla Software. “As an EnterpriseDB partner, we can fast track our customer solutions and deliver more targeted support and services.”
